COMMENTS

Sum_{n >= 1} 1/a(n) = Pi*sqrt(3)/9 - Benoit Cloitre, Apr 07 2002

Appears as diagonal in A003506. - Zerinvary Lajos, Apr 12 2006

The aerated sequence 1,0,2,0,12,0,60,0,... has e.g.f. 1+x*Bessel_I(1,2x). - Paul Barry, Mar 29 2010

Conjecture: the terms of the inverse binomial transform are 2*A132894(n). - R. J. Mathar, Oct 21 2012

FORMULA

a(n) = A002011(n-1)/2 = 2 * A002457(n-1).

G.f.:  2x/sqrt((1-4*x)^3). - Marco A. Cisneros Guevara, Jul 25 2011

E.g.f.: a(n) = n!* [x^n] exp(2*x)*2*x*(BesselI(0, 2*x)+BesselI(1, 2*x)). - Peter Luschny, Aug 25 2012

(-n+1)*a(n) + 2*(2*n-1)*a(n-1) = 0. - R. J. Mathar, Dec 03 2012

G.f.: 2*x*(1-4*x)^(-3/2) = -G(0)/2 where G(k) =  1 - (2*k+1)/(1 - 2*x/(2*x - (k+1)/G(k+1) )); (recursively defined continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Dec 06 2012

a(n-1) = Sum_{k=0..floor(n/2)} k*C(n,k)*C(n-k,k)*2^(n-2*k). - Robert FERREOL, Aug 29 2015

From Ilya Gutkovskiy, Jan 17 2017: (Start)

a(n) ~ 4^n*sqrt(n)/sqrt(Pi).

Sum_{n>=1} (-1)^(n+1)/a(n) = 2*log(phi)/sqrt(5) = A086466, where phi is the golden ratio. (End)

1/a(n) = (-1)^n*Sum_{j=0..n-1} binomial(n-1,j)*Bernoulli(j+n)/(j+n) for n >= 1. See the Amdeberhan & Cohen link. - Peter Luschny, Jun 20 2017

1/a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} (-1)^(k+1)*binomial(n,k)*HarmonicNumber(n+k) for n >= 1. - Peter Luschny, Aug 15 2017
